Merry Monday Christmas Pup

Seasons Greetings! Merry Christmas!

I just had to use one of my newest Christmas stamps! I've been buying a lot (my poor budget) but sure have gotten many great ones. More to come as I get time to blog. ;-)

Today's card uses the Patient Pup stamp from Stampendous. Isn't he adorable? I am entering this card in the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #268 - Santa Hat.
Being a dog lover, I had to have him! I used Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake to stamp him and fussy cut him out. I was afraid to try to color him, so I just let the details show in the black Versafine ink. His hat though, to me is special, so it was colored with the Zig Clean Color Carmine Red. To try to make the fur stand out, first it was colored with white colored pencil then with White Wink of Stella. Can you see I colored in circles with both to make it look furry?

Completing the card is a frame complete with Merry Christmas from Taylored Expressions called Picture Perfect - Horizontal. I bought it last year and never used it. More Ziggy in green this time along with the red colored on the letters looks festive to me. It was a challenge trying to figure out what to put inside until I got the idea to use an old stamp of unknown origins that says Peace*Love*Joy. Done. I am pleased.
